    We are searching for a dog for a young fellow that is suffering from autism and asthma; the family can not afford much; but, they definitely need help.

    All you do with this program is so positive for both inmates( I'm including the dogs- also behind bars). Let's pray that all will have a happy ending!🐶

    I think this is a wonderful program, it gives the inmates something good to do, a fun job each day, it comes with responsibility and you need to have a caring attitude. They invest their time training these dogs in hopes someone will give them a forever home, you get a chance to bring them home for a weekend to see if you are a good match and if not you can bring the dog back, I don't see how anyone could return one but at least you have the option. My daughter is currently in this program she told me she "Loves" her job, she sounds happy each day when I speak with her and the time is passing fast. The dog she is training was returned so she is being retrained and I hope to adopt her myself! This program not only helps the inmate but the animals so much as well. I hope to be able to donate soon. Tell all your friends about the program and lets get these sweet dogs adopted!!

    I have also seen a documentary recently on inmates training and socializing dogs, and my husband and I thought it was a wonderful idea and had no clue we had a similar program! When we saw a dog of interest on Pet Harbor to adopt, and found out she will be in this program, we immediately filled out the application. Thank you all for what you are doing! Maybe encourage the powers-that-be in Duval Co. to get on board? :)

    I've seen documentaries on prisoners training dogs and the benefits to both, but had no idea that we have an active unit right here in Gainesville. This truly excites me. I'm looking forward to attending upcoming events and perhaps even finding my future companion!

    I'm so glad to know this program is still so successful. The trainers at North Florida PAWS, Inc., are in the midst of the first program at RMC Work Camp in Lake Butler (affiliated with Lake City Humane Society). Prison dog programs are more beneficial to the inmates, dogs, and animal shelters than most people can possibly imagine. GO, HILARY!
